Special Edition Bible Study: Homosexuality

Postby Ongurth » May 27th, 2015, 7:23 pm

Remember how I said that we'd start the Genesis study this week?

I was wrong. :) A few conversations this week have led me to decide that we're going to do one more topic study before we begin our series.

We'll take a brief look at the issue from a Biblical perspective. Those of you who were here for the blog post I wrote last summer on this will be familiar with the material, but recent events have made me think it would be good to revisit.

See you tomorrow night!

Typical wishy-washy Ongurth. Can't decide what he wants to do.

Seriously, though, I'm looking forward to this. I've been finding myself seriously thinking about this subject recently, and I'd like to hear thoughts from others on the matter.

Personally iffy, being a peace type of guy and all... (though I was fine with tradition because it's not a "hot topic" per se).

I'm pretty solid, though I don't wanna be >that guy>. Still will most likely come, and listen (and probably ask many questions just to make it fun :P).

Since it's 9pm, I guess much will depend on the server behavior. lol.
Does anyone record these? I'd be interested in listening/reading the transcripts were that an option. :)

Also, Great gif, MichaelFedora!

I could see about doing that. Idk where I'd host it though.

Here's some food for thought before we dig into what scripture says on the topic of homosexual behavior and same-sex marriage.
___________________________________

"For anyone about to bail on the millennia-old understanding of marriage, I hope you’ll consider what’s at stake. Because it’s more than you might think.

The moral logic of monogamy is at stake. If three or thirteen or thirty people really love each other, why shouldn’t they have a right to get married? And for that matter, why not a brother and a sister, or two sisters, or a mother and her son, or a father and his son, or any combination of two or more persons who love each other? I’m not suggesting this is what all, or even most, liberal Christians are arguing for. I am suggesting that there is no consistent logic to forestall this kind of argument. Jesus never spoke explicitly against polygamy. He never said anything against incest either. Maybe the New Testament authors only knew of exploitative polygamy. If they had known of committed, loving polygamous (multiple wives) or polyamorous (many lovers) relationships, who’s to say they wouldn’t have approved? Once we’ve accepted the logic that for love to be validated it must be expressed sexually and that those engaged in consensual sexual activity cannot be denied the “right” to marry, we have opened a Pandora’s box of marital permutations that cannot be shut."

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that I'll be recording tonight, though it's for someone else. If you'd be interested in getting the recording, get with me and I'll see what arrangements I can cook up.

Well that was fun. :d

Turned out better than expected though, it does seem the majority is quite conservative hahaha.
